The weather man said “Cloudy with a chance of showers”. Without the showers we ended up with perfect golf weather on Tuesday, June 4, not hot, not cold, not wet, not windy. Forty-two ladies turned out for another fun night. My buddy, Deb Rainer was away, but Donna Salle and Lois McInnis picked up the slack.
Betty Foote, a favourite of everyone’s had a fantastic round to score a 57 which gave her second low gross in Flight 4. She also came closest to the Marker at the Bottom of the Hole 8 Hill in 2 (Barriere Timber Mart), and scored a KP in 2 on Hole 6 (EBL Ventures). Her most impressive feat was landing about 2 inches from the Accuracy line on Hole 3 (Rainer Custom Cutting).
Catharine Phillips had an excellent game with a score of 41. She won a share of the deuce pot, the low gross for Flight 1 (Campbell & Company), KPs on Hole 4 (Royal LePage/Westwin Realty/Cindy Leibel) and Hole 6 (Barb and Carman Smith), and Least Putts for 15 putts (Sun Life Financial/Ainsley Gullage). Another name that was bandied about a lot was Audrey Rilcoe. She scored 49 to win low gross in Flight 3; KPs on Hole 4 (Salle Ranch) and 6 (Ron Wallace Trucking).
Flight 2 was sponsored by Kelly VanGenne of Expedia CruiseShipCenters and the winners were Deb Legaree (low gross by retro) and Trudy Forsythe (low net) Both ladies scored 47. The remaining flight winners were Susan Newberry (low net Flight 1), Marie Hakes (low net Flight 3) and Jessica Thompson (low gross Flight 4). Of course, there were the usual catcalls of “Move them up”. Pot winners (and no, I don’t mean marijuana) were Deb Legaree (deuce), Trish Thompson (birdie) and Cindy Leibel (chip in).
Betty, Catharine and Audrey didn’t win ALL the prizes. The long drivers were Janice Advent (High 5 Diner), Leslie Stirling (Munro Clothing Co.), and Lois McInnis (Quality Contractors) while Sue Paulhus had a short drive (Bear Lane Bistro & Boutique). KPs earned prizes for Debbie Legaree (MJB Lawyers and Brian and Brenda Carl), and Dorothy Warman (Stamer Logging). KP in 2 on Hole 7 went to Donna Salle (HUB International) while Trish Thompson picked up the KP in 3 prize (AG Foods) on Hole 7 and Marla Hajmerle won the KP in 3 on Hole 8 (Barriere Motor Inn). The putting people this week were Marla Hajmerle (Sam’s Pizza), Marian Wallace (Gift ‘n Gab), Rose Seymour (Armour Mountain Office Supplies), Jeannie Webber (Little Fort Subway) and Dorothy Warman (Thompson Valley Awards). Lisa Galanov won the Sun Life Financial prize for most putts (27). Leslie Stirling joined the usual suspects picking up the North Thompson Funeral Services prize.
My closing thought for the week: you haven’t really played golf until you’ve had to decide which opening in the trees gives you the best chance of getting back to the fairway. Have a great week and see you on the course.
